BCOA History

The BC Orthopaedic Association was established in 1995 and since then has worked tirelessly for excellence in orthopaedic surgery in British Columbia. With an elected Executive and provincial Board of Directors, the membership consists primarily of orthopaedic surgeons in active practice, as well as some retired members and members on maternity leave or sabbatical.

The BCOA works in partnership on a variety of initiatives and innovative programs with Doctors of BC, the BC Ministry of Health, the regional Health Authorities and with national and international orthopaedic surgery organizations such as the Canadian Orthopaedic Association (www.coa.org).
